Message from Harrow Council.
This is to notify you that some filming will be taking place in Pinner Memorial Park this coming Saturday. A crew of 20 will be filming scenes for a Children In Need promotional advert and this will involve use of one of the paths leading towards the Museum.

Warning – Parking Ticket Machine Scam


Dear Watch Member,

On the morning of Thursday 19th August an elderly gentleman was the victim of a parking ticket machine scam in Hatch End. The victim parked his vehicle in Grimsdyke Car Park (behind the shopping parade in Uxbridge Road) and paid for his parking ticket. As he walked along Uxbridge Road he was approached by a man who told him that he needed to confirm his parking ticket with a bank card. The man has then escorted the victim over to a nearby parking ticket machine, made him insert his bank card into either the change slot or ticket slot of the machine and input his PIN via the keypad used to input a vehicle’s registration number.

The man has then told the victim to wait by the ticket machine for a few moments until his bank card is released. However, the man had already stolen the victim’s bank card and withdrawn £500 from the victim’s account.

This scam has occasionally happened in Pinner but, whatever area you park in, please be wary of any helpful stranger offering to assist you with parking payment-related matters. And remember, you cannot pay for parking at any of the few cash machines left in Pinner, which is another scam previously reported to us.

Please inform elderly family members and neighbours of this scam to protect them from fraudsters.

Thank you Julie and all the volunteers for the Summer Band Concerts

A huge Thank You all the volunteers who helped us to put on our 2021 season of Summer Band Concerts in Pinner Memorial Park on the last four Sundays.  We carried on despite the weather and enjoyed four wonderful performances from the Harrow Steel Band, the Fats Rollini Jazz & Blues Band, the Stardust Big Band and today from Simply Gray.   Our audiences obviously enjoyed these free open air concerts in the lovely surroundings of the park, as the generous donations to the West House and Heath Robinson Museum Trust charity who were collecting at the last two concerts demonstrated.

There is one person without whom none of the concerts would have happened – from obtaining the necessary permission from Harrow Council to use the park and booking all the bands to picking up litter, putting up and taking down the equipment, and litter picking before and after each concert, Julie Waller, Chair of the Pinner Association has been indefatigable and managed to keep smiling come rain or shine – so a special “Thank You” Julie from us all.
